goal

Lyon must beat Sevilla by two goals or more to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, despite being "seriously shaken emotionally" after firecrackers were thrown at goalkeeper Anthony Lopes on Saturday.

Lopes, 26, has "traumatic deafness" after the incident at Metz that led to their Ligue 1 match being abandoned.

The French club are third in Group H on seven points, with Sevilla on 10.

Sevilla could top the group if leaders Juventus fail to beat Dinamo Zagreb.

The Italian champions are one point ahead of Sevilla and are at home to the Croatian club, who are yet to pick up a point.

French striker Wissam Ben Yedder scored the only goal as Sevilla won the reverse fixture 1-0 in September.

Anthony Lopes
Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes was receiving treatment when a firecracker exploded near him at Metz on Saturday

And Lyon face a difficult challenge to improve their fortunes at the Stade de Lyon after the weekend's drama, which left Portugal international Lopes in hospital.

Lopes has been cleared of permanent damage to his eardrums but it is unclear whether he will be fit for Wednesday's match.

"Lyon underline the fact that the whole squad... have been seriously shaken emotionally by this aggression," the club said.

Sevilla have been boosted by the return of former Arsenal and Manchester City playmaker Samir Nasri, who resumed training on Sunday after injury.

Match facts

  • Lyon have won just one of their last six home games against Spanish opposition in the Champions League - a 1-0 victory against Real Madrid in 2010.
  • Sevilla could become the first team since Real Madrid in 2011-12 to keep three clean sheets away from home in a Champions League group campaign.
  • Lyon have lost four of their last five home games in the Champions League.
  • However, they have reached the knockout stages in nine of their last 10 Champions League campaigns - with the exception being last season.
  • Sevilla have won their final group game in each of their previous three appearances in the competition.
